Cities from Space - Calgary, Canada

Day eight of our tour of city lights from space takes us to Calgary, Canada. This image was taken December 24, 2010 by the Expedition 26 crew of the International Space Station:

The image of Calgary is remarkably clear and reveals that the city is awash in light. Every street seems to be continuously illuminated.  So much so that the image above could easily be used as a map of the city.
